Description

While there is no denying yoga's popularity as a form of physical exercise, the other life-enhancing aspects of this tradition remain obscure to many Westerners. This text introduces techniques that treat not only the physical body, but also the emotions, mind, heart and soul of the practitioner. There are breathing techniques to control energy levels, exercises to train and sharpen the intellect and meditative practices to help increase self-awareness.
